He’s back! The late Mordecai Richler had planned more adventures for his small hero and now, with the full support of the Richler family, award-winning author Cary Fagan carries on the tradition in a hilarious story for a whole new generation of Jacob fans. After Jacob Two-Two’s father writes a very important novel, the family makes plans to move to Canada. They board the SS Spring-a-Leak for a journey across the ocean. Jacob Two-Two makes some new acquaintances — the unbelievably handsome Captain Sparkletooth, the acrobatic Bubov Brothers, the failed toy inventor Mr. Peabody, and the giant but gentle Morgenbesser. Most important, he makes friends with young Cindy Snootcastle, who keeps a secret treasure in her pocket. But something is wrong on the SS Spring-a-Leak. A series of clues — a black eye patch; a parrot who squawks “Apple sauce in your underpants!”; and a sailing ship flying the Jolly Roger — can only mean trouble. Will the intrepid Shapiro and the fearless O’Toole really be left on a desert island? Will Jacob Two-Two be made to walk the plank? Jacob Two-Two on the High Seas is a treat for those who know Jacob and for those who are about to meet one of the most endearing characters in children’s literature. From the Hardcover edition.

The Mystery Of Jacob Engles

Author : George Ewing Ogle

The title story, The Mystery of Jacob Engles, was inspired by a real family mystery. Family history information abruptly ended with the author’s paternal grandfather, George Ewing Ogle. But there seemed to be an understanding that the real great-grandfather was likely to be a man by the name of Jacob Engles, who went off to the Civil War in 1864 and was gone for decades. Lacking real answers, the author weaves a moving tale, accounting for the missing years, explaining how the family became Ogles, and telling how Jacob Engles ended back in the hometown to find his family. The other ten short stories in this collection were written over the period of sixteen years, and most were also inspired by real people.

But when his family life goes sour, Huddie decides to return to Toronto. As he reconnects with his old friends, he finds himself wrapped up in their lives.

From New York Times-bestselling illustrator Kady MacDonald Denton and award-winning author Cary Fagan comes a charming sibling story that has the makings of a contemporary classic. Benny's little brother is really good at a lot of things -- making potions and paper airplanes, building forts, putting on puppet shows, even petting the neighbor's cat (he has a special way of scratching her just behind the ears). But whenever he tries to join in Benny's activities, all Benny ever says is "No." Maybe his little brother can watch him do cool stuff, if he's lucky. What is a little fox to do, except give Benny a taste of his own medicine? Totally familiar yet fresh and original, tenderly told and consistently funny, this story perfectly captures the joys (and annoyances!) of sibling relationships.

Petty Officer John G. Makie of the Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve did not realize what he was getting into in the summer of 1942, when he gave an oath at Camp X under the Canadian Secrets Act of 1939. He was only seventeen years old and determined to defend the freedom of Canada. He did so, in the most extraordinary way. He was special agent number 034, of the secret service group - under water demolition squadron. These secret agents were very highly trained commandos, who came from Canada, Britain, and Australia. These fearless men were scuba divers trained in small arms and hand-to-hand combat. They entered enemy occupied countries by the sea, carried out acts of sabotage and clandestine warfare. Then, they quickly disappeared into the night, back to the sea. These men had no name or rank, just mission after mission in Russia, Norway, Sweden, and France. This brave group of men, personally encouraged by Sir Winston Churchill, Sir William Stephenson, and Lord Louis Mountbatten set out to set Europe ablaze. When the war was over in Europe they set out to mop up Burma and Hong Kong. Yet no record of fallen buddies can be found. The year 1996 marks the end of the fifty-year gag order by oath and with it, the truth is finally set free. The Spy Worker reveals secrets of a time long, long agoall accounted by the lone survivor, now in his eighties which are finally free to share with friends and family. After many therapeutic sessions over the last ten years, events of this forgotten group are starting to surface. Although there are no records of their missions or medals of valor ever rewarded, The Spy Worker pays tribute to the unsung heroes of war in remembering their notable acts of bravery.

Sullivan is still trapped with the Melville's Medicine Show, along with Frederick, Esmeralda and Clarence, travelling around the country. But his family has not given up hope. His parents got in touch with the parents of the other children, and his sister, Jinny, is determined to get back on the road with Manny in order to pick up the trail of the mysterious medicine show. And they are helped by a very real clue: a decades-old newspaper article about a travelling medicine show that mysteriously bears the same name ... Back at the show, the Melvilles are becoming unhappy with the children's performances. Sullivan drops some eggs, and worse, Clarence is finding it a tighter and tighter squeeze inside the "automaton," the chess-playing Napoleon. They are soon going to need a new child to join the show, and the Melvilles know just the right one. Despite the children's best efforts to prevent another child from being kidnapped, a new girl joins the show. But the Melvilles may have underestimated the new girl, whose feisty nature is inspirational to Sullivan. The Melvilles certainly seem preoccupied with something--at every new site, Master Melville can be seen carefully examining the grounds. With their families ever closer, the children of the travelling medicine show band together to solve the mystery of who the Melvilles really are and just what they are looking for.

Can These Bones Live

The Providential work of God flowed Westward and formed One Nation under God - America! The Great Awakening in the 1740s prepared American hearts for Liberty, severing Colonists from the European godlessness, replacing it with a Christ-centered culture. Can These Bones Live is a moving account of the Providence of God in Early America. The relevance of knowing historic truth is absolutely vital in maintaining the Rights and Freedoms fought for in the Revolutionary War. The muscle around the backbone of these United States has dried up. America has both forgotten and forsaken the old ways: It needs the breath of God to live again. Walking in the footsteps of our Forefathers gives light to the path we must take, making history understandable and important in our lives, and in the future life of the nation. David P Pett was the fifth of eight children; he was born during the Great Depression into a humble farm family that respected the Bible. Born Again in 1950, David became an avid student of the Word of God. Graduating from St. Paul Bible College, he pastored several churches. He also took a refresher course at Western Evangelical Seminary near Portland, Oregon. His love for music and history found their way into his writings and ministry. From his early ministry on, David had a passion for writing, generating articles in magazines and weekly newspapers. He published a monthly newspaper [THE BRIDGE], wrote two Christian History Manuals, and a monthly newsletter entitled WHY, all with a vigorous commitment to serve God and the Church, the Body of Jesus Christ.

Twelve-year-old Sullivan Mintz helps his family run the Stardust Home for Old People. While his father worries about finances and his mother is distracted by her poetry (rather embarrassingly, she's known as the Bard of Beanfield), Sullivan deals with his little sister, who can be a bit of a brat, and gets taunted at school for being short and clumsy. As a result, Sullivan's best (and only) friend is 81, which is pathetic, but at least Manny introduced Sullivan to his #1 obsession—juggling. One night, Sullivan glimpses Master Melville's Medicine Show, a travelling caravan. Enchanted by its mysterious and magical allure, he has to visit it again. But thrill turns quickly to dread when he steps onstage for the magic show ... only to wake up trapped inside the caravan! Sullivan's chances for escape are dashed by the Melvilles, but he's comforted by the other children in the show. Clarence, the small boy who trains dogs, becomes Sullivan's first friend his own age—and there's Esmeralda, the beautiful girl who walks the tightrope. Best of all, this new "family" values his juggling! While Sullivan is coming to terms with his new life, his younger sister and Manny hit the road, intent on tracking him down. But even as they follow, the caravan rolls on, taking Sullivan and the others farther away from their homes.

Is there someone out there for everyone? Two lonely souls find each other in this unusual tale of friendship and belonging from award-winning comic writer Cary Fagan. In her North American debut, illustrator Banafsheh Erfanian brings ornate artistry to the cage and birds that inhabit this surprisingly human story. A long-empty birdcage takes a chance and leaves behind its attic home to find a bird to keep. Out in the world, the cage encounters many birds and offers shelter to each of them. One by one, they refuse, explaining why they belong elsewhere. The cage feels lonelier than ever – until the cage in search of a bird finds a bird in search of a cage. Based on an aphorism by Franz Kafka, Fagan’s original story will make readers laugh at its absurdity and ponder its meaning long after they finish reading.
